Restore a deleted Sprint

I accidentally deleted a Sprint which was closed initially. How can I restore it?

Dear Sundaresen,

It is not possible to restore a deleted sprint in JIRA. The only thing that you can do is load a XML backup somewhere. Do notice that when loading an XML backup, this will replace your current environment data.

If this is not an option, you should rebuild the sprint.

Friendly Regards,

I did the same thing, quite accidentally, from the "Sprint Report".  The name of the sprints was wrong in one of my projects and when I fixed it, I deleted the other incorrect sprints from the report....or as it turned out, altogether.  The sprint report appears to be for a single project, but in fact, it is for all projects.  Further, quite honestly, I don't believe one should be allowed to delete a sprint from within report.  The implication is that something is being deleted from a report, not the item itself.

So, our velocity data is now missing from our first two sprints.

Is there really no better solution than restoring some backed up XML (by the way, we use Jira Cloud)?

same issue here.. seems JIRA has no solution to simply recover an accidentally deleted sprint .. looking on the licensing prices.. a damn sh*t

I just did this on Jira cloud.  I just started a new sprint with the same name and start date of the original and it looks to have pulled all the tickets back into it.  Anyone else seen this?  2 second fix for me!

No, Jira has deliberately screwed the pooch on this. I now must recreate an already completed/closed sprint, manually add all the issues and their statuses, and then renumber all succeeding sprints (some of which have also already been closed).

Why do we have to come to this forum instead of receiving 'competent' customer support from Jira, you know, like other *real* software companies do?
